'Post Time' Hoosier Remote Preview

Published: August 7, 2017 01:33 pm EDT

Post Time with Mike and Mike, presented by BetAmerica, is pleased to announce its broadcast schedule for the 2017 Dan Patch Stakes at Hoosier Park on Friday (August 11).

Post Time will provide live pre- and post-race analysis live from Hoosier Park between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Eastern time. The coverage will include coverage of the Pick 5, interviews of all the participants, and analysis of the Dan Patch Stakes.

Jessica Otten and Taylor Johnston will join the Mike and Mike duo during all of the Dan Patch Stakes festivities. The pair will help cover the races and provide paddock and winner’s circle reactions.

Hoosier Park will have a T-shirt giveaway to the first 2,000 guests visiting the Trackside Club Centaur starting at 10:00 a.m. on Friday. There will also be Mystery Vouchers worth up to $1,000 given away to the first 500 Club Centaur members. Hoosier Park will also host a $500 Dan Patch Mega Bet, where players can swipe their Club Centaur Card at any promotional kiosk from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and at 8:30 p.m., five winners will be selected to play a win bet on the Dan Patch Stakes.

The focal point of the horses eligible to the Dan Patch is world champion Freaky Feet Pete, who was sidelined with injury at the end of the 2016 season. Freaky Feet Pete returned to racing in 2017 with the legacy of his former trainer Larry Rheinheimer on his shoulders. Rheinheimer died in 2016 prior to the Hoosier Pacing Derby. Freaky Feet Pete scored his first victory of 2017 at his home track Hoosier Park on August 4 against Open company.

In 2016, the Dan Patch Stakes saw a battle of epic proportions, as it set the stage for many epic battles between Always B Miki and Wiggle It Jiggleit. The 2017 rendition is setting up to be another great battle of the great aged pacers currently in the sport of harness racing.
